First time trying a brisket in the slow cooker...after reading all the reviews, both good and bad, I must say it turned out quite good. My 5-1/2 qt slowcooker was just barely big enough for an 8lb brisket, but I cut it in half & it fit! I only cooked it for 12 hrs on low as my Rival SmartPot crockpot cooks way too hot, even on low & it was done perfectly. I shredded it last night, refridgerated it & will add the sauce tonight, warming it stovetop. I also just ordered a new slow cooker (a different brand)! Hopefully the new one will be more reliable as we want to have this again & again.
Perhaps other are having the same issues with their slow cookers, if so decrease the time on this and other recipes. Apparently the manufacturer does make quite a difference.
Thanks for posting!
